In 2012, Lyon’s chapter chartered with the national freshman honor society, Alpha Lambda Delta. Each member must be a first-time, full-time freshman with a minimum GPA of 3.5 and a ranking in the upper 20% of his or her class in the fall semester. This year, the mean GPA of the inductees was a 3.85, well exceeding the minimum requirement.
